I buy very little other than clothing new. I'm not being critical of your using Amazon, but I can't imagine feeling like it's "dangerous" to go to the store, I guess part of it for me is getting out of the house, today people seem centered on staying home, just the times changing I guess. It would feel so weird to me to not just run up to the store for oil, or anything really. I hear you on Autozone pricing, they are outrageous, they just opened one near me and I freaked out at the cost, like a parts place for people who know nothing about cars, but want to act like they do, the employee's seemed lost too, if it's not in the computer or for something newer than say a 2010 car they just gave you the blank stare, I like Napa, not cheap, but not crazy either, but EVERYTHING is expensive today. Luckily I don't have to go to Wal-mart much, but no better deal on Mobil One, I only change oil once a year as I don't drive much these days. I'm old fashioned I guess, when I pay for something, I want it, then not tomorrow.
